Vegepacks loitering Triffid-like on Lisbon street corners

Have you ever wondered what happened to all the old Turners & Growers Vegepacks which were so dominant in our industry until the mid nineties when plastic crates took over as the main packaging mode for fresh produce?  We can now let you  into the secret.  The Vegepacks seems to have been shipped to Lisbon, where they loiter at various street corners, making life difficult for tourists trying to navigate town.  When we walked past the same spot a couple of days later, the Vegepacks were gone – and the square was back to normal.  Very disconcerting indeed!
